I have a USE seatpost, 25.0mm diameter

My seat tube is 26.6 internal diameter (Orange Prestige)

Anyone have a suitable shim? or know where I can find one?

Preferably in plastic or alloy.

I have considered the ghetto Coke-can shim method but 1.6mm would need quite a few cans of Coke! (or beer :D ).

Quality shims are available from cane creek or Use. You require 1.6mm thickness, so a standard 25.4->27.0 shim would do.
